Hello, I am Bear Cole –
I Am Never Afraid Of A Challenge –
I Have Diverse Knowledge and Experience

Explorer

I hike, camp, paddle, and explore wild places. While I’m at it I teach and motivate others to enjoy and protect the outdoors safely and fully. As a Certified Wilderness First Responder, and steward of Leave no Trace Ethics I help others enjoy the wilderness safely, and protect it for the future.  I write and create content to help others remember how important it is to get outdoors with your family and know how to survive if you need to. I am the Wild West Explorer.

Web

I have a degree in Web & Graphic Design. I spend most of my time online writing and sharing content about the outdoors, the Southwest United States, Survival, and Fitness. I also freelance helping companies build and brand themselves online in multiple ways, from creating graphics to creating websites and apps. I am a Certified SEO professional, and love the art of online marketing.

Fitness

As an ACE Certified Personal Trainer with a specialty in Functional Fitness I have a goal to prepare people physically to survive today and tomorrow. I share fitness knowledge and program specific information for my Wild West Survival Fitness Academy here.

Art

I am an author, photographer, musician, and documentarian. I am currently working on projects involving all of these skills that center around my unique hometown The Grand Canyon National Park. I have a degree in Audio Engineering and use my skills in Multimedia to create fascinating content.

I Have Never Believed In Just Doing One Thing. I Provide A Suite Of Experience And Skills, And A Nearly Uncontrollable Drive To Learn.

I Explore

Growing up in The Grand Canyon National Park influenced me in many ways. As I grew older I realized I had a responsibility to motivate others to enjoy and protect our wild places. I have always been an explorer. My family and I love a good adventure sometimes, and a relaxing primitive camp miles from civilization other times. I write, photograph, and document my travels and unique perspective on the outdoors as the Wild West Explorer.

I Utilize the Web

I have years of experience working in multiple facets of web technology. As a Web Professional I help Businesses, Artists, and Individuals use the internet to succeed. I design Web Sites and Graphics. I also have a deep understanding of Hosting, DNS, SSL Certificates, and Base Level Coding Skills. Wordpress is my weapon of choice.

I Am A Leader

Whether it is leading a group of hikers on the trail, an individual to health as a customized Personal Trainer, or a team of employees as a Team Lead or Supervisor, I am a leader. I don’t just say that either. I have years of experience and training in Leadership strategies and fundamentals. This includes training I received as a member of the Arizona State University Leardership Scholarship Program.

I Create

I love to Create. I don’t sit around and talk about it, I do it. I am not the type to let an idea waste away. I have released close to 15 musical albums, and produced many more. I have published books and poetry. I have also published my photography. I write and make videos for my own Outdoor Adventure Site Network. I am currently writing my first full length book, and working on a Full Length Documentary and Corresponding Book.
